Melania Trump is thanking essential workers in the United States for the tireless amount of hours they’ve contributed during the coronavirus pandemic. The First Lady of the United States posted the long message of gratitude Saturday afternoon on her Instagram account.
“We salute essential workers in the health care industry who are fighting to save lives. We thank those who put themselves at risk to keep our grocery stores, pharmacies & gas stations open,” Melania began her message to American workers.
FLOTUS didn’t just contain her gratitude towards those in healthcare and law enforcement, as she recognized other essential workers who have been keeping things going for the rest of us during these uncertain times.
“Those who ensure that our power plants & factories are up & running, that we have internet & phones to stay in touch. Those delivering mail & packages to all us at home & keeping the shelves stocked. Our deepest gratitude & appreciation goes to each & every one of you,” she wrote.
Americans appeared to love the message from Melania, as they quickly filled up her Instagram feed with comments like:
“A true First Lady, thank you for all you do for this country.”
“Thank you! I appreciate all you do!”
“Thanks to you dear melania and to all of them.. my God bless them and their efforts to keep our health good.”
Along with the essential workers, Melania Trump recently gave a shoutout to senior citizens, as they have been severely impacted during coronavirus because they are classified as high-risk.
“Greetings to our American seniors. The changes in our everyday lives will not last forever & we will be able to visit with our loved ones soon again,” Melania explained.
She added that seniors should listen to the instructions from their healthcare providers, and that:
“Until then, I encourage you to stay in touch, keep your spirits high, and remember, all of America is working together to keep you healthy & safe.”
While Easter activities at the White House were obviously canceled this year, Melania Trump still wanted to keep one of the First Lady traditions alive and read a children’s book. Luckily, she was able to post a clip on Instagram and even wore her Easter best with an all-green outfit and matching high-heels.
“Happy Easter! While I am not able to read to children during the #WHEasterEggRoll, I would still like to honor the annual tradition & share a reading from one of my favorite Easter books – “The Little Rabbit,” her message read.
